KMS Textured Video

An example of the corruption I see when using KMS and XVideo is up at:

The only difference I noticed today, as compared to my first KMS try, is
that the video now updates when in full screen mode just like it already
did when in a window.  It is possible the dmesg output which was fixed
by commit 6521dbf3884185ca5692d35d879d251890cc4f08 only occurred during
full screen mode.  If so, that commit did fix full screen updates.

The only other new thing to note is that I see the occasional:

  X: page allocation failure. order:4, mode:0xc0d0

in dmesg, now.  That one seems to correspond to one of the mplayer runs
I used to create the above png.

I'll post the full dmesg output to
